Palma de Mallorca, the “pearl in the Mediterranean” is a very diverse and exciting city.

Whether culture, shopping, relaxing, sport, beach life, nightlife or whatever else the visitor expects from a big city. Palma de Mallorca fulfills all wishes.

The capital of Mallorca is located on the 20 km long Badia de Palma bay. Seen from the sea, the city panorama looks like a theater backdrop. The magnificent La Seu Cathedral can be seen from afar. Around 400,000 people live in Palma, which is more than half of all Mallorca’s residents. The people in Palma do not only live from tourism. Administration, banks, airports, ports, as well as craft and industry offer many jobs.

Palma can look back on a long history. In 123 BC The Romans under Quintus Caecilius Metellus conquered the island, which had been in existence since 5000 BC. Was settled by the Talayot culture.
As one of his first official acts, the Roman consul founded the city of Palma, which was then called Palmaria Palmensis. The most beautiful view of Palma is from the late afternoon from the Castel de Bellver, a little above. Other sights include, of course: – the La Seu cathedral, – the Almundaina Palace, – the Castell de Bellver – the Pueblo Espanol, – the port of Palma de Mallorca, – the old trading exchange, and the Arab baths.

The most famous attraction of Palma is the Gothic cathedral La Seu.

Palma is easy to explore on foot or by bus. There is also a subway in Palma de Mallorca, which opened on April 25, 2007. It consists of one line with a 8.5 km long route and has nine stations.

If you arrive by car, there are several parking garages available in Palma. However, these can also be overcrowded in the main season and on Saturdays. In general, the closer to the center, the more difficult it is to get a parking space. This applies in particular to the Parc de la Mar parking garage below the cathedral and the parking garage on Placa Major.

Palma is also very suitable for “shopping”. The main shopping streets are in the old town above the cathedral. At Placa Major in the old town there is an underground passage with shops, a few restaurants and a supermarket. There are cafes and a few designer shops on Passeig des Born. The wide promenade is lined with trees and palm trees and offers space for a short break on many stone benches. In the Avenida Jaume III, a very popular shopping street, there are shops for clothes, shoes and art.

The Porto Pi shopping center, which opened in 1995, is conveniently located at the end of the Paseo Marítimo of Palma (towards Andratx), directly at the main exit of the motorway and the city ring, the Porto Pí Centro is a reference and a central shopping center in Mallorca. It includes a wide variety of shops, restaurants and a varied range of leisure activities, both outdoors and indoors.

TIP

A city tour through Palma in the evening is also highly recommended. You experience Palma in a whole new light. The La Seu cathedral in particular is beautifully illuminated in the evening.
